It is almost impossible to avoid stress. Our bodies are very well equipped to deal with short-term acute stress, we have a built-in alarm system that when activated, releases a surge of our stress hormone cortisol. However, when stress becomes chronic and unrelenting this will wreak havoc on our bodies leaving us at higher risk of developing cardiovascular disease, diminished immunity as well as causing a harmful shift in our gut bacteria, diminished cognitive function and depression. Studies show that prolonged stress levels lead to accelerated ageing and premature death.
How Can Nutritional Therapy Help?
I offer an anti-inflammatory, low Gl diet plan targeting a healthy microbiome and balancing blood sugars in order to restore inner calm and balance. Herbal supplements known as adaptogens are very well researched as being highly effective in reducing stress by enabling us to ‘adapt’ to situations reducing the impact of stress on cells, tissues and organs throughout the body. Adaptogens have been used for thousands of years to help restore the body’s natural balance. I will also work with you to identify stressors and how lifestyle intervention can make positive changes to drastically improve your overall health and well-being.
